Purpose of this Page
This page is a repository of scientific information and links for the field experiment at the Los Angeles CalNex Supersite (*) as part of the CalNex-2010 field campaign. The focus of the campaign is to study nightime chemistry (led by Jochen Stutz of UCLA) and formation of secondary organic aerosol (led by Joost de Gouw of NOAA and Jose-Luis Jimenez of CU-Boulder). Prospective investigators who are interested in participating in this study should contact these PIs.
There is no specific call for proposals for CalNex-LA. NOAA investigators will be funded by internal NOAA funds, while university investigators need to find relevant funding. CARB and NOAA are funding a limited number of external investigators.
- The list of instrumentation deployed at the site is here
- The data for the ground site is being moved to this web site from the FTP site, by Ken Aikin of NOAA. The username and password are the same as for the FTP site and the presentations from this Wiki.
